Wow, this is one average beer! And it may be the most uninspired porter I've ever tasted. It's not horrible, it's just forgetable.
A - Standard dark, dark brown to black body. Not an overwhelming head after the initial foam up settles, and it settles quickly.
S - There was a smell?
T - Lacks the spiciness, or any kind of bite, that you'd get with better porters. This tastes more like a stout gone flat. The roasty, toasty malty flavors are there but in sparse numbers and with little force.
M - Pretty watery for what it should be.
D - Drinkable, but only in the way water is.

Ummm Yeah. Roasted malts, some barley backing, low ABV and some espresso and faint but very faint chocolate. An average porter that poured a deep, deep drown. Nose was of roasted malts and some espresso, much ike the taste. Not to compex and pretty standard. If you are this is worth a try over the rest I would say but dont get your hopes up.

On tap at the brewpub in Santa Barbara. My favorite beer from Downtown so far, though that isn't saying a whole lot. Actually a tasty and balanced porter, albeit a bit simple. Nice dark brown color that you can just see through, capped with a lasting tan head and lots of lace. Light aroma of espresso. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side, as is the house trend. Chocolatey, with a nice roasted bitterness and enough hops to clean the sweetness up. Medium bodied with middle of the road carbonation. I liked the hops bite in this a lot, though the malts were pretty one dimensional. We were drinking the IPA before this, and it took a little bit of prodding to get the group to get the "dark" beer, but this turned into the hit of the night.
